Bitterblue – Kristin Cashore (7 Kingdoms #3)

Bitterblue, by Kristin CashoreUgh, super boring. Bitterblue is one of those main characters that I felt like smacking throughout most of the book. You are the QUEEN, girl. Why are you letting everyone lie to you? Fire your shady-ass advisors, quit worrying what your father did because you already KNOW, order your own new clothes, and start telling people what to do. She creeps around through the whole book doing normal everyday things that she for some reason thinks she needs to keep from everyone. Also, quit falling in love with gay guys.

The ending tied in Fire…eh, nicely enough, I guess. By that point I didn’t really care about anything except getting to the end. A disappointing ending to a series that started out promising, with Graceling.

Audiobook notes:
Narrator: Xanthe Elbrick. I didn’t enjoy the narration. I REALLY HATED that Po and Katsa’s accents were…Scottish? It was jarring every time they spoke. Better than that horrible full-cast version of Graceling, though.

  1. I liked Graceling, and wanted more Katsa and Po action, so I didn’t opt to read Fire until 6 months later. I liked Fire, which, if I’m honest, I probably wouldn’t have gotten into it if I hadn’t taken the 6 month break after Graceling. I immediately started Bitterblue (which I’m still reading right now) and OMG is it sooooo BORING. I’m dying through it. I’m only like 1/5 of the way into the book and I keep waiting for it to at least get as good as the other two books, but, ughhh. So far, definitely a let down to the end of the whole series. I’ll amend this statement if necessary when I finally finish the book.
